Some more Neat Modeling…

I’m a little late with today’s post as we just returned rather late last night from a train show in Kirkland, Ohio.  Just a word about the Kirkland show… it was well-run and the help there was top-notch. If you live anywhere near there, it is definitely a show that I’d put on my “to visit” list.

Anyway, when I got home after a 2+ day absence, I was greeted with something like 150+ emails.  Among them were a few from one of the Pirates, Jim.  He has been working on his layout again after an absence and the model railroad world is fortunate to have a modeler of his skill level back at it again.


Here’s a shot of one of the new Accurail cars and I believe it is sitting on an older Model Die Casting/Roundhouse floor and underframe.  Jim beat me to it as this is one of the projects I’d like to do with the new Accurail car… graft it onto a floor with truss rods.  Neat variation!


This is a model coal yard that Jim has been working on as well. Jim tells us that the scene is by no means done as the trucks need to be heavily weathered in order to fit in with the rest of his scenery efforts!

It’s always great to see what others are doing and I’m more than happy to share with you when people share with me.  Please feel free to share your efforts with me so that we can all see what you have been doing.
